Hearing #Cubs will try to get something done before Thanksgiving. Not sure if trade or FA yet.

I'm not going to defend Weber, his recruiting from 2005-2009 was abysmal. But like I said, Self left him 1 highly rated recruit (Dee).

The timing of moves in the offseason matters? Whether a trade or signing happened before or after Thanksgiving is relevant?

Welsh-Ryan feels more like a large high school gym than an arena, not going to lie. Guess I was just spoiled by years of going to the Assembly Hall.

But hey, live hoops is live hoops.

Mueller one of the better pure hitters I've seen on the Cubs.

Knew something was wrong when I saw a bunch of friends posting "oh no" and various obscenities on Facebook and Twitter...

Not to go full on BWC here but if his other knee is torn this time...this team is done for the next 5 years. They'll never be bad enough to bottom out because of Thibs, for some reason no big star ever wants to come to Chicago, and I doubt Rose will be anywhere near as good as he was a few years ago. He's a volume shooter who relies on explosiveness, not good if you just tore a second ACL. Basically our only hope would be the Bobcats pick, which I doubt will be a top 10 pick whenever we get it.
